Winter Solstice Sunrise

First rays of sunlight over Resurrection Bay, Seward, Alaska. 

I captured this photo as the sun just peaked over the mountains this morning.  Right after taking this photo, I looked down at my watch;  10:31 a.m.!  Today is the winter solstice and thus the shortest day of the year.  Officially we are to receive about 5 and a half hours of sunlight today.  Because we are surrounded by mountains, our actual sunlight is much less.  The good news, now the days are getting longer!
